I just bought another so called 500 FPS field point target. Still a pita.
354 FPS works great. I’m too old for struggling at anything, especially just to tell folks I’m shooting over 400 FPS arrows. Remember the buck I popped with a 139fps 608 grain arrow? 😊 He died just as dead as with a 400 grain arrow, and it was a lot more fun and challenging. EASY “ain’t” worth doing. I’m too old to change my mind, no matter how hard YOU try😆.

If easy … ain't worth it just keep sending arrows into those bricks you're using for targets. :p

Zakker, that was my 2018 crossbow buck. I had my Stryker 350 with me that afternoon. 343 fps 😊. That was the only time my wife hunted with me that year. I think I might take her again this fall😊 I’ve got to give my R26 a chance.

I had just washed his body cavity out and letting it drain. It does look funny :LOL:

Got the fall hunting issue of SG catalog today. Wow! Only the CenterPoint Amped 415 at $404 and SWAT XP 415 at $899..... but the full line of latest issue Ravins, including the R26, R29 and R29X, priced from $2K to $3K.

Will do. I was going to wait until next year and see what Mission does but the R10 was the original bow I wanted to try and changed my mind. The Viper is a superb bow I just want to try Ravin. I've looked at them long enough...time to own one

The 10 has been around for awhile now and should be as solid as a rock. I have a friend that purchased one recently and he’s happy with it, especially its consistent accuracy.

Best value in crossbows right. Also its the least stressed Ravin.
My little R26 with R29 cables and string, shooting 403 grain arrows at 354 FPS, is minimal stress but it’s not shooting 400 FPS anymore. Smack dab in the sweet spot😊.
